She says that she learned a lot of things while she was on this trip and this was an experience she will never forget.

‘Les Mis’ packs powerful performances

‘Les Mis’ packs powerful performances

Thursday, May 12, 2011

I felt such an amazing connection with these characters, whether it was when Eponine experiences heartbreak and despair or when Marius falls in love with Cosette.
